Come Celebrate Christmas in July with a Hop (and great projects!)

Welcome and thank you for joining us for our Christmas in July Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Tiffany at Sparkled Memories. If you just happened to stumble upon this hop, please be sure to go back to Elaine's blog @ ExpressionsByElaine so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects we have to share.

Be sure to visit & follow all the blogs to be entered for the Grand Prize, after you have stopped at all the blogs be sure to go back to the beginning blog Elaine @  ExpressionsByElaine and leave your name in the inlinkz.
Here is the line-up:

Candace @ scrappin2littleprincesses (Next) 
Here is my project for today:
I created 5 holiday cards using 3 Birds on Parade. I just received this cartridge within the last 2 weeks and this was the first time I used it. These are the cutest cuts and they are super easy to piece together.
  Gifts Bird p.45 with present buttons
 Winter Bird p. 42
 Snowball Bird p. 62 with snowflake buttons
 Santa Bird p.43 with Joy button
Lights Bird p. 44

I used Bo Bunny ~ Tis the Season paper, solid card stock, various buttons, Cuttlebug embossing folders, scalloped edge punch, and white craft thread.  

 Since this is a Christmas hop, I have a gift for one lucky person. It is a Cuttlebug embossing folder ~ Moroccan print. Please leave a comment each day for a greater chance of winning. Be sure to include what you like about the holidays, your blog address (if you have one), and your e-mail. The winner will be announced Wednesday, July 27th.

Your next and last stop will be Candace at  Scrappin 2 Little Princesses. Enjoy!
Thank you for joining us today.

  1. Hi Georgiana,
    Your cards are so adorable and festive! Loved that you did a card for each of the holiday cuts! I have had this cartridge for some time now and have yet to use it! Thanks for the holiday inspiration and I will definitely have to dust off this cart :0)

  4. Your cards are all so awesome, Georgiana! The birds are too cute - I'm going to have to get that cart now! I love how you made each card unique! Gorgeous cards! My favorite thing about the holidays is getting to spend time with family you don't get to see very often, and all the festive cheer :)

  10. I just absolutely {heart} 3 birds on parade. Favorite part about Christmas is that the US is announcing Crist a lot more and many come to learn about him during this time.

  18. What fun cards! I love the embossing you did on the lil bird with the lights. I have picked up that embossing folder to buy it and always put it back because I wasn't sure how it would look. But you changed my mind, I'm getting it! You really did a great job with all of the cards!

    I'm a newbie here, I would love for you to stop on by! Thanks for sharing!

  39. Oh wow, beautiful cards Georgiana!! I really want that cartridge now!!!!

    My favorite thing about Christmas is knowing that our grown daughter will put everything in her hectic life aside for a few days, and hang out with us and be "all ours!" I just wished our son and his wife lived closer so they could do the same thing.
